Blake Lively: Actress or fashion icon?

Can you say flawless? Regina George ain’t got nothin’ on Blake Lively. But is the Gossip Girl alum becoming known more for her fashion taste than her acting ability?

Not that we’re complaining about our own lives, but if somehow the whole Freaky Friday premise came true, we would want to switch lives with Blake Lively. The hair. The body. The wardrobe. The husband! It’s enough to make anyone green with envy.

Lively is increasingly becoming known for her keen fashion sense rather than her acting career, and the past couple weeks have amplified this fact. The 26-year-old starlet has been working the red carpet at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, looking flawless as usual.

However, it’s been a bit since Lively has entertained us on the big or little screen. Gossip Girl ended in 2012, and we haven’t really seen her in anything since (though The Age of Adaline, starring Lively and Harrison Ford, is due out in 2015, according to IMDB).

Could it be the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star is pulling a Victoria Beckham? Judging by Lively’s personal style, there certainly wouldn’t be any shortage of buyers if she decided to start her own fashion line.

A couple of examples to solidify the case:

On May 15, she owned the carpet for the premiere of Mr. Turner in a light blue Chanel gown, according to Us Weekly. The ensemble nips at the middle, creating a perfect hourglass figure, and the pastel color of the dress complements her skin tone perfectly.

The day before the Mr. Turner premiere, the Gossip Girl actress showed up at the festival’s opening ceremonies looking equally fab but rocking a completely different kind of look. While the sparkly pastel number was ethereal and flowing, the previous night’s theme was much more sleek and sophisticated. She’s not looking too shabby for a girl who claims she doesn’t go to the gym and eats chocolate every morning and night.

No outfit is complete without proper arm candy, and while it appears that Lively is lacking in that arena at some of this week’s events, she usually has that aspect on lockdown. Just last week at the Met Gala, the actress was the epitome of Old Hollywood glamour, accompanied by her hunky husband, Ryan Reynolds. The gorgeous couple have been married since 2012.

Even more amazing? “I don’t work with a stylist,” Lively said to Us Weekly in 2011. “I just like whatever I am feeling. Sometimes things are really beautiful, but they just don’t photograph well, and that’s that. I don’t know, I don’t really look at pictures of me when I’m in public,” she added.
